    The trio known as Suspended Memories recorded the follow-up to FORGOTTEN GODS between gigs and literally from the four corners of the globe. Techno-shamen Steve Roach, Jorge Reyes, and Suso Saiz are three of the few musicians who can effectively merge the primordial and the contemporary with both mesmerizing force and galvanizing power. Atmospheric presence is in spectacular abundance on EARTH ISLAND, enshadowed within a smoky cavalcade of obfuscating rhythms, piercing chants, liquefied guitars, and chasms of respiring, nocturnal electronics. The seemingly telepathic link among these players reflects itself more vividly in these macrocosmic compositions than in any other recording in the genre in recent memory. From the drifting expanses and rugged hand-struck percussion of "Melting World" and the near-mythic prehistoric rumblings of "Places Inbetween" to the ancient floating meditations and serpentine rhythms of "Curandera," Roach, Reyes and Saiz' ongoing tribal odyssey continues in a gripping exploration as equally illuminating as the aural templates they've individually forged.
